Sassnitz is a city in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

Get in

Trains from Bergen (Rügen), Stralsund and Binz. The train station and bus station are next to each other, and only a short walk to the town.

Get around

Frequent buses to Binz and other Rügen towns. Beware that, on rural services, changing from one bus to another seems to be popular — the driver will announce "umsteigen (placename)".


Sassnitz: the old town

The old part of the town behind the northeastern end of the harbor. The town is is on cliffs above the harbor, there are steps down near the shops, or it can be approached through the old town. Walk past the shops (the sea should be on your right) and fork right downhill.

Sassnitz: the harbor

Ferries to Sweden used to leave from the harbor here, but now use the modern port near Dubnitz known as "Fahrhafen Sassnitz"


Sassnitz harbor: the conning tower of HMS Otus is on the left-hand side

Visit the U-boot museum. This is near the disused ferry terminal. Perhaps surprisingly, the U-boat (submarine) on display is a former British submarine, H.M.S. Otus of the "Oberon" class, which was towed to Sassnitz after having been saved from a scrapyard in Portsmouth (GB).
